Cyber Security can be a headache to manage and the problem is getting worse, on the one hand, you need to keep your data and devices safe, on the other hand setting up complex passwords can be time-consuming or annoying for you or your staff.

People and their passwords are the weakest links in any organisation and the problem is getting worse. There are lots of ways to steal someone’s passwords and one successful hack can bring your entire operation crashing to the ground.

So what can you do? Often the most effective approach is the simplest, Multi-Factor Authentication (2FA) is simple to use while providing a deterrent to Cyber Criminals. There are other security steps to protect your business and we included a few in our Guide.

You will know it already from when you log in to online banking,

you either give random characters from a secondary password or enter a code from a notification on your mobile phone.

You may even use a special USB device to authenticate you, there are lots of ways to do it but understand it is a simple way to add a layer of extra security, making it less likely you will be hacked.

Our email wasn’t performing very well so we asked Hamilton Systems to take a look & Carl proposed to migrate us to MS Exchange.

Carl was very helpful throughout & the migration went very well.

He was on hand to sort out any teething issues, taking calls early morning & into the night, to ensure we were up & running smoothly.

Would recommend for knowledge, attention to detail & great customer service.”
